Happy Birthday Steampunk Style

Good Evening Crafty Friends and Followers

Whew what a journey home today.  Coming over the Penine's wasn't nice at all it was foggy and raining too.  Stuck in traffic from junction 18 to 12 which is where I come off onto the M62, junction 11 was closed so traffic was slow to junction 9.  Boy was I happy to get off the motorway today.  Drove straight to Asda to do my Christmas food shopping.  All done now so apart from going to see my Dad tomorrow and then the boys on Sunday I have no other plans to do any driving until the New Year when I return to Leeds.

I hope you are all ready for Christmas now!  I am except for wrapping hubby's Christmas presents.  Lots of time planned for getting some crafting done too.  Crafting for me for a change will be great.  I want to try different techniques and get out my stamps and inks etc.

Today's card is from Kraftyhands Steampunk Emporium CD which you can purchase here.

Card base has been printed off which is a rocker card.
I have matted and layer the topper and embossed the topper with Clear Embossing powder.
The cogs are wooden and from Crafty-Emblies which I have used Fran-tage to give them a metallic look.

Thank you for stopping by Today
